I'm not sure I think that would be nice ;-)  Seems kind of risky, in 
that it adds a lot of indeterminacy.  That's the main reason why lots 
of us are down on request chaining too.

That's a gut reaction, but without more demand for it and more 
consideration of possible side effects, it's not something I'd be 
likely to implement for fun on a Saturday afternoon or anything...


BTW, we are probably creeping into struts-dev turf on this thread here...
